The Miami Herald today has a textbook example of burying the lede. Four paragraphs under the headline “County elections chiefs to state: We won’t resume voter purge program” is this gem:
About 40 people statewide have been identified as noncitizens. At least four might have voted and could be guilty of a third-degree felony.
So a very cursory review has already found forty non-citizens on Florida voter rolls? How many would a thorough review reveal if it weren’t stopped by the Eric Holder Justice Department and the ACLU?
And the same cursory review has shown four of these non-citizens actually voted?! Which four Democrats want to volunteer to have their votes cancelled by these criminals? What would completion of the program statewide reveal? Ten non-citizens? 100? 500? What number would convince the voter fraud deniers like the ACLU that something needs to be done?
Instead, cue the voter fraud deniers to announce that non-citizen voting in Florida isn’t an “epidemic” or “widespread.” They will crow that “only four” examples have been found! This is how the people who are institutionalizing criminality in our elections operate. They sue. They threaten. They add threats from the DOJ. They print outrageous editorials in the Tampa Times.
The only people standing against these enablers of crime are regular citizens who actually write emails supporting state officials, Governor Scott and election integrity groups.
